In episode three we do a Petri dish of experiments, discuss going to extremes then tailoring it back to learn the middle, the UBUNTU, riding tiny or small boards along side the longer rail experiments, how the day you know is a day of arrogance and why knowledge is knowing what you do not know. Enjoy!

YouLane is . . . A year spent experimenting with boards and concepts shared together with Ashton Pickle. Learning together shapes you. Connecting weekly, recording these every three months and holding things loosely within the framework which we designed and committed to. Ashton is a talented shaper and excellent surfer. A husband and father of three.Specifically designing and shaping twin fin surfboards, for all wave types. I appreciate his vulnerability and willingness to spend this year together and record these with me for you all. Together we learn. Jimmy Thompson sits in on episode 5 and explains how he understands surfing and the places these twin fins and designs have taken him and his surfing. The goal of the entire “YouLane” concept is to find someone in your life with whom you can create a structure and framework that suits you. Learn, live, share.Repeat.
